It’s now Bard vs Chat GPT, the Browser wars have begun


Recent developments have transitioned to from AI taking jobs to now AI wars, which is is an interesting narrative to follow up for the next few months and years probably.

As Microsoft is making a big AI move with its revamped Bing search engine and Edge web browser, both of which are powered by what appears to be exclusive access to the successor to OpenAI’s popular ChatGPT large language model. A new, next-generation OpenAI large language model that is more powerful than ChatGPT and customized specifically for search.

It takes key learnings and advancements from ChatGPT and GPT-3.5 – and it is even faster, more accurate and more capable.

Yesterday Microsoft announced a new version of its search engine Bing, powered by an upgraded version of the same AI technology that underpins chatbot ChatGPT. Microsoft is launching the product alongside new AI-enhanced features for its Edge browser, promising that the two will provide a new experience for browsing the web and finding information online.

“It’s a new day in search,” said Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella at an event announcing the products. Nadella argued that the paradigm for web search hasn’t changed in decades, but that AI can deliver information more fluidly and quickly than traditional methods.

“The race starts today, and we’re going to move and move fast,” Nadella said. “Most importantly, we want to have a lot of fun innovating again in search, because it’s high time.”

This all comes after Microsoft has tried putting the best foot forward to beat the chromium based Browser. Bing is now able to:

Microsoft says these features are all powered by an upgraded version of GPT 3.5, the AI OpenAI language model that powers ChatGPT. Microsoft calls this the “Prometheus Model,” and says it’s more powerful than GPT 3.5, and better able to answer search queries with up-to-date information and annotated answers.

Microsoft is also launching two new AI-enhanced features for its Edge browser: “chat” and “compose.” These will be embedded within Edge’s sidebar.

Google’s Bard

As the conversation thickens, Google has taken the blow to Microsoft as it launches Bard. Bard uses Google’s own LaMDA (Language Model for Dialogue Applications) to power a conversational AI that can also draw on information from the web.

“It’s a really exciting time to be working on these technologies as we translate deep research and breakthroughs into products that truly help people,” Pichai writes. It’s hard not to wonder while reading this how Google managed to get leapfrogged so decisively by OpenAI, the latter of which is now synonymous with the technologies the former pioneered.

Trusting the future of Search ?

Honestly, partially would be my choice , this is because as the big tech fights validity of non compromised information: These tools have a bigger data set that they pick from, with every time you ask a query they seem to provide different answers on the same trajectory however as they continue to learn. Take for example :

Microsoft addressed these and other issues in its presentation, saying it had been working hard to safeguard against risks like bias and “jailbreaking” (tricking AI chatbots into disregarding filters intended to prevent them generating dangerous or hateful content). 

But it is still the rise, so let’s wait for the manifestation.
